Hi peeps! Have great news to share, but since it's a long story, let mepost my card first. LOL, that way anyone who's not interested to read my story don't have to suffer reading the long post. Hah.
This week, at Paper Play Challenge
the challenge is to create a project using ORANGE, OLIVE GREEN
& BLUE colors
. Please check out all the DT fabulous projects for more inspirations.
Anyway, on to my great news. Peeps..., after many weeks of stressing out, I finally got my ticket to Jakarta! I'm going home for Christmas! Yippie kay yei! :)
I've been stressing out about being able to go home or not. I've been watching the price going up for weeks and with sinking heart, I thought, how am I going to do this. I want to be home for Christmas so badly & I miss my mom, my brothers so much. I kept praying, please let there be a miracle or computer glitch or glitch on the airline system, where maybe they posted the wrong price & I get to buy the ticket at that price.
Yes, I pray for computer glitch. I was desperate. :) Tuesday evening, as I pray hard while checking the price, I saw the price drop to what I can afford, for the day I need. The thing is because of work, I don't have flexible date on when I can go. I can only go during the slowest work time & also it had to be unpaid time off. So, good price was a must.
My mom is the type that always put others before her. She kept saying, honey don't worry, if you can't come home, that's okay, I understand. I am okay, don't worry. But, the truth came out when I called her and let her know I am coming home for sure. She was like, "I can't wait to hug you again!" Simple words, but to me so powerful. I can only imagine how hard it is to be so far away from your child. It's hard fo rme not to be able to touch her or hug her.
I cried and later I told hubby, to hear her joy, it's so worth it whatever stress I went through. Time with family is priceless. I mean, even as I type this, my heart just filled with so much love. I am thankful to have a husband who's so supportive & loving. Not both of us can go and we'd have to be away from each other for Christmas, but he knows how much I have missed my home and he encourage me to go because he knows this is important for me.
Not only I am home for Christmas, I will also get to celebrate my mom's birthday with her. Joy, joy, joy!
Thank you to all of you who's been so kind and encouraging when I was down. Your thoughtfulness means so much to me and that's why I want to share this news with you all. If you read this all, thank you even more for caring. :) Thanks for everything. I have the best blogging friends. Cheers!!
